[OLSR-users] OLSRD triggering too many modprobes

I just finally found out the responsible of the intermitent lockups of
my embedded systems.
It turns out that whenever olsrd checks for a network interface, a
kernel module loader event is triggered and modprobe is called.
Since I have like 12 "phantom" interfaces that are in the olsrd
configuration "just in case" some day they get plugged in, the 12
modprobe processes put a large load in the system periodically.
The only good way I could think of to solve this is to use a variable
olsrd.conf file which is updated whenever a new interface is plugged and
then issues a HUP signal so the olsrd daemon reloads the configuration.
Any other suggestions?.
